Donald Trump rides wave of anti-establishment sentiment to one of the most improbable political victories in modern US history by beating Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Republican nominee won on Wednesday after capturing Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes, putting him over the 270 threshold. is opponent, former Secretary of State Clinton, won a fewer-than-expected 218 votes. Results are still coming in from some states, but they no longer matter. He shattered expectations on Tuesday with an election night victory that revealed deep anti-establishment anger among American voters and set the world on a journey into the political unknown. Trump became the 45th President of America. It was an unexpected outcome for the Republican candidate, who beat out not only a stacked GOP primary field but also an even more formidable opponent in Hillary Clinton, who was consistently ahead of him in the polls up and in a much stronger position on the electoral map. Donald Trump has won the key battleground state of Florida. Both candidates have spent an extraordinary amount of time in Florida, one of the most important prizes on the map. Trump calls Florida his “second home” and his campaign acknowledged that a win there is vital to his White House hopes.
The Republican took the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio early this morning, as he marched towards the White House.
Mr Trump pledged that he would be “president for all Americans” in his New York victory speech. He said he was “reaching out” to the people who had not supported him to “unify the country”.
“Now it’s time to bind the wounds of division. I say to Democrats and Republicans it is time come together as one united people,” he said. Mr. Trump thanks his parents, sisters, brother, late brother. And, his wife, Melania. “I love you and I thank you”. He asserts that while the campaign is over, “our work on this new movement is really beginning.”
